Yarn Reviews


I Love This Yarn by Hobby Lobby

I do love this yarn! In fact, it is the only acrylic yarn I’ve found that I like to use, mostly because of the color choices. It is sold at Hobby Lobby…I think it is their own house brand…not 100% sure about that, but it’s the only place I’ve found to buy it. I have only used the regular 7 ounce weight but there is a cotton only yarn, a chunky yarn and a baby yarn.  It costs $3.99 a skein, but I use the weekly coupon, or watch the ads for a special to stock up for a project.


SWTC Bamboo by South West Trading Company

I absolutely love, love, love working with bamboo yarn. It can, however, be difficult to find. I have purchased at Hobby Lobby and they brand they offer is good, but very limited in terms of colors. I finally found an online company that carries a fabulous product in over 30 colors. It is not cheap. A 100 gram ball costs $15.00.  Totally worth it to me when I am making a special scarf as a gift for someone dear to me. Have you ever felt bamboo? It is gloriously soft.
